A little background about West Lincoln ELL. West Lincoln has been an ELL Center since August of 2004. The first year, we had about 65 student and 4 ELL teachers.
We now have about 155 ELL students in grades K-5 in levels 1-5. We have speakers of Spanish, Vietnamese, Nuer, Arabic, Ukrainian, Kurdish, Urdu, and Bosnian at our school. We currently have 5 ELL teachers.
Mrs. Irwin is now teaching at Prescott and Pershing Elementary schools and Mrs Magdalena Benton is still our Spanish Bilingual Liaison here at West Lincoln.

January 2012 update. Due to growth in ELL across the district, Kara has been moved to teach at Kahoa and Brownell. She already was teaching at Elliott in the afternoons. We will miss Kara and we are thankful that she was a part of our team and school community!!
